What can you expect from the DFCS Academy on a day-to-day basis?
Featuring 6.5 hours of synchronous instruction by Champlain College faculty every day, our curriculum will be delivered via virtual classroom remote desktop protocol (RDP) in order to achieve the same learning outcomes as our prior on-campus program. Our synchronous curriculum allows students in our virtual classroom to build community and to experience collaborative teamwork.
The daily program will include morning and afternoon instruction/labs, and a combination of instruction/lab and recreational activities in the evenings. We'll work right through the weekend to take full advantage of the time we have together.
